Opinion

That poor NBC peacock logo is going to be meaningless in twenty years, when everything associated with NBC is wearing it like a piece of jewelry. (See parent company Comcast take on the logo too). I get it: putting the peacock in there builds instant association to the network but I think it's a great disservice to the icon. Next thing you know the actual NBC channel will have to have a peacock next to the peacock to confirm its original use. Additionally: the typography on this is too awkward.

Your opinion…
